During National Library Week, April 23 – 29, we called upon our community to rally together and raise its collective voice in support of all that the Boston Public Library stands for, as a center for democracy, a facilitator of growth and opportunity, and a haven that is welcoming to all.

Learning English Through Song

Marisela Valero came to Boston from Venezuela in 2020. She quickly joined the Boston Public Library’s ESL Chorus and found that singing helped her feel connected to the city and to other English-language learners who love music and singing as much as she does.

Exploring BPL Branches

Through the generosity of thousands of donors, the Boston Public Library Fund was proud to support the Library’s successful initiative to increase the number of library card holders. This past September, BPL staff created the Passport Program, a booklet outlining routes to walk, run, or bike between each of the BPL’s 26 locations.

Never Too Late To Learn

When Christina Ingram became a young mother, she was forced to leave high school to care for her son. Despite many obstacles, Ingram was determined to earn her diploma — and when she stopped by the Boston Public Library (BPL), the opportunity finally came when she saw a flyer for Excel Adult High School.  

Sponsor an Alcove in the Business Library

Your company’s sponsorship of an alcove in the Kirstein Business Library & Innovation Center will raise the visibility of the Center and directly contribute to advancing equity in Greater Boston’s business environment.

Tapping Into the Power of People 

In  recent  years,  patron  demand  has  outpaced  the  Library’s  capacity  for  certain  critical  and  innovative services  and  resources.  To  meet  this  growing  need, forward-thinking  private  donors  have  funded  several new  staff  positions.
